Argai was a planet located in the Cronese Mandate of the Outer Rim. It was best known for having been the homeworld of the ancient pre-Republic conqueror Xim the Despot, and the first capital of his empire.
Description[edit | edit source]
Argai was a chilly rocky world with little to see except scattered ruins and the blaze of the Indrexu Spiral in its night skies. The planet had once been the site of Xim the Despot's grandest palace, but it became little more than scattered stones over the eons.
Sah Gosta was a settlement on the planet. The Argaians were renowned and cursed since the first days of the Tion Cluster history as hard-bitten traders and daring pilots with a habit of turning to piracy. It was generally believed that they and their planet had changed little since the days of Xim.
History[edit | edit source]
Argai was one of the original worlds of the Kingdom of Cron. Xer conquered nearby worlds in the Cronese Mandate, founding the Kingdom of Argai circa 25,150 BBY. He later defeated the King of Cron Ferece, becoming the new King of Cron.
Xim came to power on Argai in 25,130 BBY where he built one of his palaces. He made Argai the capital of his empire and the site of the first of his throne worlds. He extended his domain from the Radama Void to the borders of Hutt Space, taking the ancient Rakatan title Daritha. After Xim's death, his Empire broke into feuding states. Argai was integrated in the Jaminere Marches.
